This month's question comes from Loyna. It is perfect for this time of year!
"I am in the market for a treadmill. Which one do you use? Which would you suggest?"
Such a great question! There are tons of treadmills on the market and it could be so overwhelming to try to make a decision. I bought my treadmill a few years ago. It is a LiveStrong treadmill and I got it on end of the season blowout clearance. It doesn't have a bunch of bells and whistles, but it does have a fan, headphone jack and a USB cord so I can keep everything charged.
Apparently you cannot purchase LiveStrong treadmills in the USA anymore (shocking) but it is very similar to a ProForm treadmill. ProForm can be very economical (Under $1,000) and don't have all the bells and whistles you probably wouldn't use anyway.
The one feature I would look for is the platform length. Even though I am shorter, I like having the longer and wider platform. Make sure you have room for it and put a mat under it as well.
This is the Runners World Guide to treadmills for 2017. Take a look, but remember to test out a few before you buy one. Also stay up on maintenance of your treadmill. I make sure I turn mine on for a few minutes once a month during the time I'm not using it. Just to make sure everything is still working properly.
Thanks so much for the question Loyna!
